A massive fundraiser will take place this Friday 2nd Feb, as family and friends of Evie Ruck seek to raise £20,000 to help set up a cafe in her memory
A whopping £12,780 has already been raised towards the plan by Evie’s family and friends’ to open a subsidised café and restaurant opposite the Bristol Royal infirmary in her memory.
Evie passed her GCSEs at Worle Community School Academy in Weston-super-Mare Somerset in August, but a few weeks after starting her A levels at The Loxton campus, she was taken seriously ill and a few weeks later after receiving treatment at the BRI for a extremely rare terminal cancer diagnosis she sadly passed away with her family by her side.
Now on Friday, All Stars in Regent Street will host a Charity Gig at 8pm organised by the brilliant band, Antic Aces that was formed by students out of WCSA.
They will play tunes from Queen, the Rolling Stones, Bon Jovi and many more.
100 per cent of the takings will go to help set up ‘The Monkey Tree’ charity, to help fulfil the cafe and restaurant plan.
There are also long-term plans to even create accommodation for parents with children being treated at the hospital.
Their plans involve raising enough money to obtain a property within a few minutes walk to the BRI to provide a warm cosy environment to eat/drink/talk with privacy.
Students and teachers at WCSA described Evie as an “outstanding, kind, happy, polite and perfect student.”
They said she was kind to everyone, polite, funny, mature and always made you smile.
On the crowd sourcing page, friends and family said: “We miss Evie dearly, but we are hoping that being able to start a charity in her name to provide support for other families going through similar situations will honour her memory.”
